Andino Lora

The small industrial PC with Lora connectivity

Andino Lora - The small industrial PC with Lora WAN Modem

Overview

Available from Q1/2019

The Andino LoRa, like its little brother, is the Andino X1, a motherboard for the Raspberry Pi.
It allows mounting on a DIN rail in the control cabinet.
The Andino Lora is great for applications in data acquisition in the field e.g.

  • production machines
  • Energy data monitoring
  • Capture environmental data Interface conversions

By the use of a Lora modem (later also 4G NB) it is well suited for the data collection in the field!

Andino Lora comes with:

  • Lora Interface
  • 2G / EDGE Module
  • LTE Narrow Band (Q1/2019)

The RS485 interface can be used as 2 wire or 4 wire (RS422) bus.

The Transmitter can be enabled by RTS or automatically
which makes the software site a lot easier.

Tested EMC Standrds

The Andino X2 was tested for its electromagnetic compatibility (EMV) together with a Raspberry Pi in its DIN rail housing.

The tests were based on the immunity to electrostatic discharge, high-frequency electromagnetic fields, fast transient electrical disturbances (burst), impulse voltages, conducted disturbances – induced by high-frequency fields and magnetic fields with energy-related frequencies.

The Andino X1 has mastered these tests not only with flying colors, but also meets the more stringent limits. This underlines its industrial suitability and brings the Raspberry Pi into the industrial environment.
